    Libya declares immediate ceasefire

    Libya has announced it will halt all military operations in the country following a decision by the United Nations Security Council to back a no-fly zone over the country.

    Mussa Kussa, the Libyan foreign secretary, said his government was interested in protecting all civilians and foreigners in a statement televised on Friday.

    "We decided on an immediate ceasefire and on an immediate stop to all military operations," he said, adding "[Libya] takes great interest in protecting civilians".

    Kussa said because his country was a member of the United Nations it is "obliged to accept to UN Secutiry Council's resolutions".

    The announcement came after Britain said it was about to start sending fighter jets and surveillance aircraft to military bases in the Mediterrranean in preparation for a no-fly zone.

    Maybe not so stupid after all. Does this mean there will be no attacks on Libya?
